What are PRPs and RPs?

PRPs and RPs are credentialed members of the National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP). Both are able to serve as consultants who can advise on how to make your meetings more effective and efficient. While each PRP and RP may specialize in a specific area of parliamentary practice, they will generally serve as a professional meeting presiders/chairs, teach and lead instructional workshops, provide opinions on meeting procedure, assist with revising governing documents, advise meeting chairs as experts on process, and so much more.


Note that PRPs and RPs have different levels of training. NAP describes an RP as someone “qualified to serve as a parliamentarian for most ordinary meetings under usual circumstances and to provide commonly needed parliamentary advice to ordinary organizations.” A PRP credential builds on the work required to attain RP status and signifies that “a member has the knowledge and practical skills to successfully deliver parliamentary services” and “shows that the member can provide quality parliamentary services and has agreed to adhere to the Code of Professional Responsibility adopted by NAP.”
